India-Japan 12th Annual Summit: PM Modi, Shinzo Abe Urge Pakistan To Bring Mumbai, Pathankot Attackers To Justice


Pathankot Attackers

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe Abe today laid the foundation stone for the proposed bullet train network connecting Ahmedabad to Mumbai. The foundation stone laying ceremony of the much-touted Ahmedabad-Mumbai High Speed Rail Network took place at Sabarmati Athletic Grounds near Sabarmati railway station.

The bullet train, which has a capacity to accommodate 750 people, is expected to reduce travel time between the two cities from seven to three hours. Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Railway Ministry have inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the 508-km corridor, with Japan to partially fund the Rs 1.10 lakh crore project.

The train project, which is expected to begin its operation by the year 2022, will have a dozen halts. A 21-km-long tunnel will be dug between Boisar and BKC in Mumbai, seven km of which will be under sea. The entire line will be at an elevation of around 20 m which will reduce land acquisition.
